  • Best place to purchase an always running Linux server for simple website?

    Hello everyone,,
    I have just spent several hours attempting to understand AWS' pricing options and it has boggles my mind. I've used their calculators and it seems like I will either pay $0.50 or $300 a month for what I want.

    I am an intermediate web developer and would like a straightforward Linux server I can run Express or Apache on for a low cost website. I expect a small amount of traffic as it is a just personal project. I understand they say you get 750 hours per month for a year of their micro EC2 with Amazon - does this mean I could run a Linux server for 750 hours a month doing what I want with it?

    Is AWS (or the other giants in cloud hosting Google, Rackspace etc) even a good place for my project? I've looked at a2hosting, hostgator etc however they seem to also have their downsides.

    Any info would be great...

    The best way of guaranteeing the continuous working of the system is taking up a platform that has a large userbase and an even greater user community.
    This way you reduce the chances of falling in a pit with your project. So, I advise that you select that option from what you have considered which guarantees proper working of your system and fewer pitfalls.

      If you want simple billing, checkout Vultr. Its far easier to use than Amazon and in my experience better performance. If your just simply hosting a php/mysql website like Wordpress I'd strongly recommend you purchase a shared cPanel plan. Its often cheaper, faster, more secure and easier to use
